Craving Creole Seasoning Mix

For years I have been cooking Louisiana-style food, thanks to a friend who gifted us a cookbook. So much so that over time I have developed my own seasoning mix that I use for much more than just Cajun and Creole cooking.

I use it in both my  Chicken Quesadillas and Seafood chowder recipes as a seasoning blend.

It also works well as a simple seasoning blend on top of baked fish. To prepare, lightly oil a baking sheet, put you fish fillets on to the sheet, and sprinkle about 2.5 ml (1/4 tsp) of the seasoning mix on each fillet. I have used it on rainbow trout, salmon, haddock, and cod. It makes a simple way to put a weeknight meal together that tastes special yet is not labour-intensive.
